Then pray- For all that is… we bless you, God! For joy fulfilled… we bless you, God! For sorrow survived… we bless you, God! For grain from the earth, for rain from the sky, for our nights and our days… we bless you, God! With words that say, “Thank you!” With songs that shout, “Amen!” With our prayers and our worship… we bless you, God! Amen. (written by Rt. Rev. Richard Bott- Moderator of the United Church)
Listen to the scripture reading & Rev Rita’s message (attached) and/or read the scripture reading & message (attached).
Then pray- God-of-All, we have set aside this day of thanksgiving, because we sometimes have difficulty remembering to live our thanks-giving. We sometimes have difficulty remembering to be thanks-giving. So, thank you, for everything! Open our hearts to realize where thanks need to be given. Open our spirits to share the words. Open our lives to be your love. As disciples of Jesus, we ask this. May it be so. Amen.
